the united states senate and the congress unanimously passed a measure to bolster mental health reporting requirements on background checks. some states like mine, texas, have received high marks for their compliance but many states have essentially been noncompliant and the department of justice has failed to adequately back up implementation of the law so essentially the law that we passed in the wake of the virginia tech shootings that require reporting of people that are judah kate at mentally ill in their respective states is not working the way it should. rather than just string along and ineffective program i think this is a wonderful opportunity for us to fix fix it and we shod fix fix it. i want to say just a word though about symbolism versus solutions. i am not interested in congress voting on a measure that would have no impact on the horrific violence we have seen in recent months. i am not interested in a symbolic gesture which would offer the families of the sandy hook shooting the old real solutions that they seek. to a person they told me they are not political, they don'
. there was a scare with ricin in 2004. something addressed to the united states senator, it came from a guy in mississippi who is apparently a frequent letter writer. they could tell from the tone of the letter. dropped the letter in memphis, tennessee but from the nature of the writing, they were able to figure out who they believe is behind it. you better believe that federal authorities are going to have questions for that person. >> greta: it's amazing when people do things like this, they put their names -- a series of letters they have be been writing and point the finger at themselves. >> absolutely. there is concern for the united states postal service, there were a number of employees before it got to the senate facility outside of washington, d.c. if you were driving a united states mail truck and had this parcel in the back of your truck obviously you would have concerns. good news you are alive but you had some deadly stuff in the truck. >> greta: any idea where he got the ricin. >> we have not heard anything about that. that is something authorities may know. they may be withho
in the united states senate, compromise is being offered on something that 92% of the american people agree with. universal background checks. universal background checks to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people b
federal investigators are briefing the united states senate intelligence committee on the attack here in boston that killed three people and wounded now 170 others. we'll speak with the vice-chairman of the committee in just a few minutes on this newscast. meantime we're learning more about the explosives used in the twin blasts. is a mentioned earlier sources are telling us they were made from pressure cookers, the kind you might have in your house. makeshift weapons that attackers often use in other countries and even in some failed attacks here in the united states. katherine heritage covers issues of this matter for us, intelligence and beyond and is live. what else do we know about the pressure cookers? >> well, shep, two sources are telling us that investigators believe the bombs used producer cookers withball bearings and nails. a style of ied associated with the taliban and the border areas of pakistan and afghanistan. as you mentioned one was also found in the failed times square bombing in 2010 and also associated with the group al qaeda in yemen, so basically no conclusions
sends poison to a united states senator is on some level a crazy person, so once you're crazy you've opened it up to any number of possibilities. >> the net widens once you've stipulated somebody is crazy could be crazy on any level for any reason. if it's a political statement or statement of any kind that's supposed to correspond with another statement with this loose n.r.a. tie, if you want to buy into that, but in any case, there's no specificity at all about this bombing. this is just an act of terrorism that appears random, nobody is taking credit for it. thus far, there are no clues. if it's intended to be a statement of some kind, the statement is. cenk: lost on us. >> exactly a blur. cenk: that's interesting because now everybody is speculating. again, i don't blame them, because everybody's curious about it. some i blame, glenn beck with his insane theory which of course it had to be the muslims because they kill in sents. he didn't say right wing, but when nationalists americans do it they target non-innocents? is that a defense of the right wing terrorism? where did yo
minutes ago, a minority in the united states senate decided it was not worth it. gun blocked commonsense reform even while these families looked on from the senate gallery. by now, it is well-known that 90% of the american people support universal background checks that make it harder harder for a dangerous person to buy a gun. were talking about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with severe mental illness. 90% of american support that idea. most americans think that is already the law. a few minutes ago, 90% of democrats in the senate voted for that idea. but it is not going to happen is 90% of republicans in the voted against that idea. a majority of senators voted yes to protecting more of our citizens with smarter background checks. but by this continuing distortion of senate rules, a minority was able to block it from moving forward. i will speak lately and honestly about what happened. the american people are trying to figure out how it didn't happen. we had a democrat and a republican, both gun owners, both fierce defenders of the second amendment wit
that mitt romney would be president, that republicans would win the majority in the united states senate, that there would be a three-way majority between the house, the senate and the presidency and we could put america back on the right track. i hoped for that, mr. speaker. i prayed for that. i worked for it, but i watched as though as the election results came to be untrue as we lost some seats here in the house and lost some seats in the senate and, of course, the president was re-elected that night and the plans of probably half, very close to half of the american people had to be changed and altered because we planned to put free enterprise back in place, we planned to repeal obamacare, we planned to do some other things, but one of the things we didn't really plan so much to do was take up the immigration issue in the 113th congress. . even though ip gracious was hardly a blip. and if it was debated, it was debated in iowa loo likely debated in iowa the first and longest. as i tune my ear to these issues, i didn't notice it was a paramournt topic or a plank in barack obama barack
90%explain to them of the american people can be on their side of the united states senate failed to reach 60 votes. i have not the word yet. i do not know what explanation is. but i know as they have said to me, we will be back. what i said to them is, it is not over. they said to me, it is not even close to over. i want to say thank you for their lesson in being resolute and resilient in the face of the law. it is a lesson for all of america here today. it is in this picture, which is worth 1000 words. we will see this caused through. it is not going away. they are not going away. the newtown families will be back. they will give a face and a voice to all of the victims of violence. the 3400 since their loss in december and the many who perished before them. i'm proud to stand with them today. safer. make america thank you. thank you senator reid and fortor mansion -- manchin getting us through this day. it is a sad day and shameful day. it is a day when a republican filibuster stood in the way of 90% of americans. ofwe need any truer version the filibuster, we saw today. ersino
is coming up that we will be bringing forward in the united states senate in as short a time as this evening. the president is supportive of the process we went through. the president having been in the senate and having seen this process before is very supportive. the president realizes that everybody didn't get what they wanted completely, but it's a product of compromise. we appreciate the president's support, and we believe that that's important as we move forward with the process. the president also agrees that this is the beginning of a process and not the end. we will have hearings, we will have amendments, floor debates. at the end of the day, we will have a bill on the president's desk because all major players that are involved in this issue are now on board, literally every major, whether business or labor and that is a change from the last time we tried this in 2007. questions. >> two more points. we do hope to drop the bill late tonight, and we are working as we speak. and that's very, very important. and one of the things we all agree with is, there ought to be an open process
thought to be a potential policy of the united states? >> senator, having no forces and no presence post 2014 in my mind would undermine or campaign success. >> well, in this article -- i just found it to be a pretty good summary of some of the difficult choices we're wrestling with and you're having to deal with. i mean, you're not the commander in chief. ultimately the president of the united states, the commander in chief, will decide how many troops are there. you'll make a recommendation up there all the chain, is that correct? chain?ugh the >> that's correct, senator. >> well, one of the things that was troubling to me is our commander in chief, president obama has been there five years and we've got troops on the ground in harm's way right this minute. and this is why mr. michael o'hanlon, the defense analyst at brookings said in this article april 2. one of the most consistent, i guess, observers of our operations in afghanistan and iraq of anybody in america. from the beginning he's been observing, commenting and writing about it and this is the liberal heritage foundation. he s

adjourned until that articulated the consensus in the united states and was very simple and very clear the purpose of the war and it is not to disrupt the social institutions of the self and everybody knew what that meant. it meant not to disrupt slavery. earlier today national intelligence director james clapper testified on automatic budget cuts and national security. he believes those cuts are making the u.s. less safe and he explained why during the hearing held by the senate armed services committee. it's a little more than two hours [inaudible conversations] >> good morning everybody. the committee meets this morning to hear from the director of national intelligence james clapper and lieutenant general, director of the defense intelligence agency spa capano current thfureat to the national securi. along with the national security agency, the national geospatial intelligence agency and the national reconnaissanceoffice and thinteencen etservices erts of the department of de that are also elements of the intelligence communy thatth direct clapper hits. director clapper while much
government, local units of getting, getting the senate involvement in it and that. so i'd like maybe you to reflect on and tell us things you think. i know, there's good operation. everybody has gotten your budget cut. you have gotten your budget cut. that means fewer people, you know, doing boater education on zebra mussel. you have fewer people talking about, you know, one problem we have incurred in the national forseeses. people fish along stream and used to dump the earthworms, you know, thinking this is good. they help the forest. i remember doing it as a kid. there wasn't any education, there wasn't any discussion about it. there was a research about what it meant when everybody was dumping their earthworms around trees. so do not! they don't in to -- [inaudible] [laughter] no. but if you could just kind of, you know, tell us a little bit about how, you know, maybe we have an endangered species legislation. maybe we need an invasive species legislation. maybe we need to talk about how we put all hands on deck both at the national, federal, local and community level on dealing with
of the united states, which is in his statement of administrative policy, which i entered into the record last night in the rules committee. and just as importantly, a bill that has no positive impact on the most important issue facing our country today, job creation, economic growth. mr. speaker, this bill is an attack on american workers, this bill is an attack on american businesses. pure and simple h.r. 1120 would effectively shut down the national labor relations board, invalidate all 569 decisions that the nlrb made between january 12 and march of this year. my colleagues claim this is a response to the d.c. circuit court decision. but when have we ever enshrined an intermediate court decision into statute? it makes absolutely no sense. this court decision found that nearly all recess appointments are invalid, but the reality is the decision of the d.c. circuit conflicts entirely with judicial precedent and past practices. president reagan made 232 recess appointments. george h.w. bush made 78. george w. bush made 171. so far president obama has made 3 . -- 32. far less than his predeces
